A/Prof. Jennifer Ogilvie

AI Ogilvie is internationally recognised in the application of ultrafast spectroscopy and nonlinear microscopy to understanding energy and charge transfer in biological systems.

She will play an important role, bringing key expertise in biological applications of the theoretical and experimental tools that will be developed in the centre. Her expertise will be particularly important in addressing questions relating to the roles that quantum mechanics and evolved quantum engineering play in the function of biological systems at nano- and micro-scale.

AI Ogilvie’s involvement in the Centre provides a pathway to impact in important real-world problems for quantum engines and instruments, which involves both theorists [CI Milburn, CI Stace] and experimental programs in ultracold atoms [CI Rubinsztein-Dunlop] and optomechanics [CI Bowen].
